~ Make sure the Release Housing Assembly is screwed down tight, both front and rear.
~ Make sure the Bumper is in place and functional.
~ Make sure the Recoil Plug is tight.
~ Double check cleanliness. Breech face, bolt face and extractor slots in barrel. Scrape parts if necessary.

I've seen very few that needed replaced, and then usually due to someone's tinkering.

The bolt is supposed to stay back when the trigger is held to the rear, then goes forward when the trigger is released.

Do make sure that the Release Housing Assembly screws are tight, and that they are staked in place.

Is that one of those really old ones that the bolt handle pushes in and out, thus creating a single fire-straight pull bolt action? If it is, the detent spring in the mechanism may need to be replaced.

no it does pull out but only pushes in on a open bolt notch. i checked the chamber face and its pretty ruff from dry firing i think i need to reshape it

YMMV, but I sure wouldn't use Stingers for function testing.
